Ricky Gervais may have made some ground-breaking film and television in his time, but there’s one thing he doesn’t attempt - being anything other than, indisputably, Ricky Gervais.
However, when questioned on this by chat show host Jimmy Fallon, Ricky made it clear it wasn’t for want of talent in that area.
"The reason I don't do accents isn't that I can't, it's that I can't be bothered.
“I'm a brilliant impressionist.
"You see those things on YouTube of people doing 20 impressions in 20 seconds. I can do that. I can do it better than them."
Jimmy obviously needed some convincing of this, which Ricky was only too happy to deliver… WATCH HIM IN JAW-DROPPING ACTION ABOVE.
Ricky's in demand. Hot on the heels of his film 'Special Correspondents' which can be seen currently on Netflix, his 'David Brent: Life on the Road' will soon be with us, in UK cinemas from 19 August.
The film picks up 12 years after we left David Brent in 'The Office', with him working both as a travelling salesman, and a musician following his dream.
